The temporary exhibits program at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) provide the opportunity for the Museum to highlight current science, research and trends. These short-term exhibits are intended to attract and engage new and repeat visitors by providing special programming that diversifies the Museum’s offerings.
Role + Responsibilities
Over the last twenty years, Zubatkin has had the privilege of partnering with the Museum on its major capital projects and other master planning initiatives. This work has included assisting AMNH in developing the overall process and timeline for their temporary exhibit projects, as well as providing overall exhibit management services. Individual projects have included:
• Body Art: Marks of Identity
• Butterfly Vivarium
• Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries
• Epidemic!:The World of Infectious Disease
• The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic
• The Genomic Revolution
• Sacred Arts of Haitian Vodou
The temporary exhibit installations required a strong understanding of working within historic buildings and structures. Construction was carefully phased to minimize impacts to the Museum’s ongoing operations.
